For the development of 6G, there will be a Research Institute of Radio. However, business is not yet ready to invest in the project, funding comes entirely from the state budget.
Interviewed Vedomosti experts believe that the decision to cut state funding may lead to operators raising their prices for communications due to the fact that the sales market for domestic companies is limited.
If telecom equipment does not appear by 2025, the connection will be terrible, – said Denis Kuskov from Telecom Daily. According to Megabitus, the average Internet speed in the regions of Russia has already fallen by 7% last year. [Ведомости]
